Juvenile First Offender Program
The Palm Beach Gardens Police Department participates in the Juvenile First Offender (J.F.O.) program in partnership with the School District of Palm Beach County. This program is a state regulated juvenile diversion program for misdemeanor first offenders. Juvenile cases are reviewed and if the criteria is met, they are offered this program which consists of classes, community service and other educational services. Once completed, the criminal case is diverted and not sent to the State Attorney's Office. It should be noted that this is program for FIRST offenders only and not all misdemeanors qualify. For more information please contact Officer Jason Sharon at (561) 799-4545.
